I love my HRM

For Christmas, Andy's mom got me a Polar F6 heart rate monitor! I was really stoked to go to the gym and try it out.


Do you believe this? My average heart rate was super high! I need to try playing around with the HRM more. I am really excited to incorporate it into my workouts.


I stupidly didn't eat lunch yesterday so when Andy and I were at Starbucks (he was grading essays) I ordered one of thse fruit and cheese plates.


And I snagged a sample of red velvet cupcake. The cupcake was AH-mazing! What is it about red food coloring in a cake that makes it so good?


I attempted to start this book but couldn't get into it. Starbucks was blasting Elvis tunes and I am one of those people who needs lots of quiet when I read. Have any of you read this book?


Dinner was a pork al pastor burrito and some roasted brussels sprouts. I actually enjoy brussels sprouts but I prefer them to be a little crispy. I need to figure out how to do that!


I mixed them with 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar and some salt n pepa.

Do you own a heart rate monitor? Do you like it? What is your average heart rate? I can't believe mine was that high during my run...but I was totally working it listening to music. Who knows?

I have read "The Host". Everyone I know who has read it agrees that it is by far the hardest book to get into. It doesn't make any sense until the 3rd or 4th chapter... but don't give up. It is a decent read in the end.

Two things: 1)I want your heart rate monitor! 2) I have never been to a Starbuck's that has a fruit and cheese platter! I'd be there all the time if I had.

Hello. First time commenter. I have read the Host, and almost everyone I have talked to also said its hard to get into. It is, however my favorite book from her! I don't know if its because I actually listened to it on audio book or not, but it wasn't difficult for me. I think you will enjoy it after the first few chapters like vicalyn said. Love your blog by the way!

Haha, great motivator to work out!

If you have gochujang (Korean red pepper paste), mix it up with that balsamic vinegar, with a bit of honey or maple syrup. SO good with brussel sprouts!

I agree with the other commentors, the Host is a very hard book to get into even without external distractions but once you do get into it, its much better than the Twilight books, so don't give up on it too quickly!

I am interested to read your thoughts on the heart rate monitor. I have been considering purchasing one but I haven't done enough research to know if it is for me.

I have the same HRM in green tea. :D I lurves him! I had to figure out the settings too and realized that when I'm kicking it harder the setting has to be higher. So running, I have the limits set to Hard. Doing Shred, it's moderate. Walking Rocky or shoveling the walk (grump), it's set to low. :)

I don't have a heart rate monitor...but I do use my nike+ for running, which gives me distance, etc. I think if I ran more I might like one...

Running always takes my heart rate up. As long as your working 65-85% of your max you are good. It probably sets it all up for you, but you can figure it out yourself too. Just let me know if you need the formula.

I really like brussel sprouts too, but I am with you on the texture. I like them more firm.

awwww koosh you have the same watch as me! I love love love it! I always wear it when I workout =). I actually made my new client get it too and it's great to train her with it because I can make sure we are not working too hard or too easy.

Mmm...brussel sprouts. Maybe just roast them longer than you have been and be sure to turn them halfway through?

I read The Host and agree with the others that it's hard to get into at first. It was okay, but I liked her Twilight saga better.

Great site! Can't wait to read more!
